We have already knew that 2017 UTME candidates will be tested on the new book called "In Dependence" by Sarah Ladipo Manyika.

Irrespective of your choosing course of study you will surely be tested on this book.

The book is to be given to candidates after paying for the 2017 UTME registration.

However, for most candidates who would prefer a soft copy of the book. Here is a summary of the book based on a review by IDOKO OJABO.

Here is the SUMMARY OF THE BOOK "IN DEPENDENCE"

Tayo Ajayi, a Nigerian, and Vanessa Richardson, an English lady, had their affair boiling when it began, however as circumstances have been meant to intervene, the connection went sore and it appeared nothing may ever carry them collectively.

The book (In dependence) has characters that behaved in like-patterns, like within the case of Tayo’s pal, Yusuf, who had dated tons of white English women.

He (Yusuf) ended up marrying a Nigerian Lady as predicted (Yusuf knew what he needed and appeared to get it).

Tayo additionally ended up the identical method in as a lot as his affair with Vanessa Richardson had been gleaming, though he had been out of the error of getting a younger lady (Miriam) pregnant.

And speaking of sample, the novel’s (In dependence) starting had opened up introducing Tayo’s affair with Christine, a Nigerian Igbo woman. One would suppose that Manyika needed to finish Tayo’s relationship with Christine for the sake of bringing in Vanessa into Tayo’s life, however nonetheless, Tayo needed to find yourself marrying Miriam. And nonetheless the wedding failed, giving in to the acquainted sample.

Miriam in Manyika’s novel (In dependence) represented the breeds of the Nigerians that may all the time run away to reside overseas because of the collapsing picture of their dwelling nation.

Miriam went away together with her daughter leaving Tayo behind. In as a lot as she persuaded Tayo, he wouldn’t go. She didn’t like an inconveniencing life. She needed the perfect life for her daughter.

Tayo, on the opposite facet represented the crude breeds of Nigerians that felt dwelling was dwelling despite the fact that the nation was boiling in corruption. In as a lot because the failure of the nation stared firmly at his face with daggers, he selected to remain.

In direction of the late pages of the novel he needed to depart the nation underneath threatening circumstances towards his life from the ruling navy regime.

The complete novel is informed from the great days of Nigeria’s independence down into the nineties. I applaud Manyika’s ink, right here. In as a lot because the setting of this novel floated by way of England, Senegal, USA, and France, she was ready to make use of her third eye to attract out Nigeria’s journey into the more serious lanes of corruption, and hopelessness.

Religion is one other situation that Manyika (In dependence) handled. It didn’t matter to her if one was a Muslim or Christian.
Studying by way of this novel, one couldn’t inform if Tayo got here from a Muslim or Christian household however we did know he embraced extra of the Christian religion. She didn’t level out the difficulties of inter-religious marriages within the novel (In dependence), however centred extra on the difficulties of interracial marriage.

Throughout Tayo’s life as an element time lecturer in Sans Francisco, the creator used a scene to unbolt some deeper points of racism.

She identified the racist ties between the African American and the pure African. These points she raised apply in all places even inside Nigerians.

A Yoruba would check with an Igbo as a grasping cash monger and doubtful monster, and in flip the Igbo would check with the Yoruba as a unclean, loquacious and silly character who spend all he earns on events and alcohol. It needed to be understood that racism was one these existences that may reside for a very long time so far as misunderstanding between folks existed.

I captured traces which  which are coated with humour on this novel, however might be referred to as racial remarks. Younger black Yusuf got here clear in his dialog with Tayo. He mentioned white ladies have been for intercourse treats whereas black ladies have been for respectable relationships that would result in marriage. He added white lady regarded so previous when she turned thirty.
The worst racist on this e-book (In dependence) is Vanessa’s father who was a one time colonial grasp in Nigeria earlier

General Discussion / READ!! How To Survive In NYSC Camp
« on: March 23, 2017, 10:13:13 AM »



The no 1 on the lists is

1.Don’t Ever Make Direct Eye Contact with a soldier  .
 Even when it is almost unfathomable that you can avoid doing so, could potentially lead to situations that may end in you feeling very, very humiliated and punished. Never do this unless directly ordered to do so, and even then it is safer to wait to be told twice, just to be sure. Your job is to stare straight ahead, nowhere else.

2: Left is Left and Right is Right.

This rule applies to hands, feet, turning while marching, sides of a pack, boots you name it. If you are told to pick up something with your left hand and you pick it up with your right hand, you are wrong and are going to draw attention to yourself. If you are a squad leader and you lead the entire platoon right when the command was left, ohhhh boy you are going to feel great after 500 pushups at 0300.

3  “Yes Sir, No Sir, Aye Sir”
Now, o

Corps finest pieces of property, you will be required to start and end every piece of language that exits your nasty little mouth with “Sir” (or “Ma’a m” if referring to a female). More often than not, the only conversational elements that will reside in between Sir or Ma’am will be “Yes” or “No.” It is not often that any other information will be required from you. When told an order, the proper response is “Aye (Sir or Ma’am).”

Endeavor to follow the rules and regulations.

If you have successfully registered for the JAMB 2017 UTME, and has collected his/her e-slip as evidence of registration.

Please, your brothers and sisters are finding it difficult to complete their own registration and over 1.5 million candidates are expected to register for this exam.

If you have successfully registered (and collected your e-slip), please share your experiences here and if there was any special procedure you adopted to help you register quickly.

You are also free to share the exact and active Accredited JAMB CBT centre that you registered with. Any information you share on this thread about registration will be valued. For those who are yet to register, BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT, update yourself also

So based on all the information we’ve gathered so far as jamb opened portal for registration, there are quite strict & limited options for you to choose as your 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Institutions.

The updated JAMB 2017 Registration Template, which we provided for you to take to the Accredited CBT Centre will now guide you on how to appropriately make your selection without having issues with JAMB.

For your own good, you should download the new JAMB 2017 Registration Template, print it and fill it with the help of your parents or teachers, before proceeding for registration, or else you are absolutely sure of your selection.

So, here are the options available to you at this time;

1st Institution – Federal or State University
2nd Institution – Private University or Polytechnic
3rd Institution – Polytechnic or College of Education (COE)
4th Institution – College of Education (COE) or Innovative Enterprise Institute (IEI)

This means you can no longer choose a Federal University and State University as 1st & 2nd Choices respectively. If you must choose a university as a 2nd choice, it has to be a private university.

You can however select a polytechnic as 2nd choice, in place of a private university, and so on, as stated in the table above.

Hope this is understood? So you don’t get to your registration point and get confused. There will be no time for confusion.

As regards the news spreading across the social media that Dr. Ajiboye slapped UNILORIN Su president, we are glad to inform you all the matter has been resolved.

The whole issue was settled after a meeting with the Vice chancellor, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, ASUU team,Council of Former President, SU,  Student Affairs Unit Student Union and University Management Team.

A Press release from the students union titled "Time to let go" which was signed by the students union president, Comrade sobowale Lukman olawale details;

"The Student Union, University of Ilorin write to express her gratitude to the management of the University of Ilorin, under the distinguished leadership of Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, OON for their support, confidence and faith in the Student Union.  We would also like to appreciate the entire members of staff of this great university for their selfless commitment, dedication and good spirit which is geared towards ensuring that the university continues to maintain its place as the most sought after university in Nigeria. More importantly, is our academic staff, who put their life on the line towards ensuring the provision of quality education in this University. At this juncture, It therefore becomes imperative to emphasize on improved staff-student relationship, as we remain partners in progress.

"On the trending issue, we would like to register our displeasure over the unfortunate event that has snowballed into a conflagration. We wish to admit that the development is regrettable but not out of place, as lessons have been learnt and bridges have been built. Similarly, we wish to state here that the sealing of the office of the lecturer concerned is not intended, but a show of discontent by some union officials, whose intention, though sincere, yet overboard! We therefore sue for peace and urge for ceasefire among all stakeholders concerned. Time has come to let go and keep up with the developmental agenda of the university of Ilorin.



"Dearest colleagues, we once again, have to appreciate the university management for their genuine intentions and responsiveness throughout this period, we wish to admit that the management has been positive to our demands and no stone was left unturned.


"Today, in what looks like a peace treaty championed by the Student Union President, Comr. Shobowale Lukman. ASUU, Council of former Student Union President, Student Affairs Unit as well as the University management in a bid to ensure an enabling environment and restore peace. At the meeting, all parties involved sued for peace. The Student Union particularly requested for urgent continuation of the postponed examination and a consensus was reached to commence all to the best interest of the University.  Although, Dr Ajiboye has been queried, relieved from examination activities and subsequently suspended as Sub Dean Faculty of Engineering. The Student Union has however,decided to withdraw this case in the best interest of our students  and ultimately let Go!

"As part of this peace accord, students from the faculty of Engineering will now proceed with their examinations.


"We understand that most of you feel disgruntled and aggrieved about the ugly development, we feel it too.  However,  we make bold to say that this is the time to let go! even as we clamour for against repetition of such.

"We all have to be prepared to put the Union first in all that we do, no matter how we feel about anything else! Unnecessary politicking must not hold us down. Our collective challenges as a Union at this time does not give room for sectionalism or politics of vendetta.
It is on this note, that we will like to appreciate you all for your unyielding solidarity throughout this struggle. We also wish to express our gratitude to the students of the Faculty of Engineering for their understanding and equanimity. We have to also stress that our retroactive steps were not in any way to bring disrepute to the lecturer concerned or the faculty of Engineering, clearly to protect the institution of the Union.

"It is on this premise that the Union will like to make a clear promise today—we will never underundermine, sabotage or jettison the stability that we presently enjoy, which is our common pride. We shall continue to protect our stability to the latter!

"We therefore wish to appreciate all and sundry for their intervention and solidarity.

"Dearest colleagues, our Union is at a time of reckoning, the bonds of trust and respect are fraying and the spirit of resentment, discontent and outrage has snowballed. We therefore, want to urge for unity and peace, to see us through this period together.

"As a Union, we will continue to remain focused and resolute to your course and provide you with quality leadership. It is our earnest hope that whatever we do will ultimately ennoble our Union.

"As always, our determination remains unshakeable.

"To our lecturers, you remain respected and honoured. Your labour of love over us is appreciated and cherished. To students,  thank you for your comradeship and show of unconditional solidarity.

According to the information on the official publication announced the registration details and process for 2017 UTME, a new book: “In Dependence” by Sarah Ladipo Manyika, has been introduced for candidates sitting for 2017 UTME.


Irrespective of your course of study or method of testing, you will be tested on this book.

A Little About The Book: “In Dependence”

The book is written by a Nigerian named SARAH LADIPO MANYINKA who was born in Ibadan (South West Nigeria) in the late 1930s.

"In Dependence" tells the story of Tayo Ajayi, a Nigerian man who gets a scholarship to study at Oxford in the 1960s, and Vanessa Richardson, the daughter of an ex-colonial officer. Tayo meets and falls in love with Vanessa Richardson, a British colonial officer’s daughter. And they negotiate their relationship against a background of race and racism. While it is a story of their love which spans from 1963 to 1998, it's way more than that.

It's also a story about Nigeria, its independence and the changes that occur in the country post-independence - the Biafran war, the first coup and the numerous countercoups, military dictatorships, the brief return to civilian rule, exile of Nigerians, and towards the end of the book the eventual return to democracy.

There are also issues of race, racism and cultural differences.

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has appealed to the Federal Government to upgrade all polytechnics to universities of technology to end discrimination against Higher National Diploma (HND) certificate holders in the country.


This was appeal was made by Mr. Adeyemi Aromolaran, Yaba College of Technology branch Chairman of ASUP, in an interview with newsmen in Lagos on Wednesday.

The ASUP chairman said that government’s discriminatory policies against polytechnics were retarding the development of technical education in the country.
“We need to look at the British example of running educational programmes, because that is where Nigeria copied the polytechnic education system from.

“Britain had abolished polytechnics long time ago; all polytechnics have been turned to universities of technology in that country,’’ Aromolaran said.

He noted that admission figures into the nation’s polytechnics and colleges of education were dropping every year due to the persistence of this discrimination.

He stressed that the removal of this dichotomy is what the union has been agitating for and that the government has not given any favourable response.

The ASUP chairman added that until all the unfriendly policies were abolished, the country would not have an effective polytechnic system that would be acceptable by all.

Aromolaran said the union would continue to protest and resist all attempts to diminish the progress and development of the polytechnic education in the country.
